I had a fantastic day with Bill. He was knowledgeable and shared his skill and enthusiasm in a way a novice could follow. The process to making a beautiful bowl was covered really well. Bill's technique of telling, showing and then allowing me to do for myself really suited me. His workshop is well equipped and warm. And his welcome was equally warm. A great experience.

Bill is a lovely person with years of experience in the trade. His workshop is warm and spacious, and the course comes with hot drinks!

I made a small yew dice shaker, and learned a lot about the craft as a whole. I'd definitely go again if given the chance!

Thanks Bill for the wonderful day and your expert tutelage, I hope to see you again soon!

What an enjoyable experience! My husband and I spent a very happy day making a candlestick and a bowl under Bill’s incredibly patient guidance and tuition. His teaching style was perfectly adapted for each of us - husband quite competent and knowledgeable about tools and making things by hand, me fairly hopeless! - and we ended up with two attractive pieces we are both rather proud of. It was relaxed, but definitely engrossing, throughout. A really good day I would definitely recommend.

My first time woodturning and Bill made it really enjoyable. The course was a good balance of being let loose but under Bill's excellent guidance. The workshop is well kitted out and tea was on tap.
Thanks Bill for a great day, the pepper grinder has pride of place in the kitchen!

Had a genuinely excellent time with Bill in his shop.

I had no previous experience of wood turning and was looking to understand it from a hobbyist point of view. Bill was patient and explained what i needed to do and then gave me space to try. I always felt well supervised and instructed but i appreciated that Bill stood back let me have a whack at it.

I'm very pleased with my bowl but i my friends and colleagues are bored of hearing about it.

I'll be back soon!

Just finished a very therapeutic day at Bill’s making a gorgeous bowl. Never done this before so having a teacher like Bill to explain, demonstrate and encourage you to have a go was the perfect balance. What a fabulous teacher, and great set up. The day flew by, and to my delight I’ve ended up with a fantastic bowl (with a little help from Bill), far beyond my expectations. Thank you so much Bill. 100% recommend this experience.

A friend and I, both complete novices, had a great day of wood turning with Bill, he’s a patient teacher who gets the balance of showing/teaching/helping just right. He’s got a really well set up workshop so no hanging around waiting for a piece of equipment to be available.
We are both ridiculously proud of our creations and would happily go back to learn more - highly recommended.

I had a great time making a pepper mill. Bill is very knowledgeable with a calm teaching style. He will guide you through every technique required to make the piece. The workshop is nicely laid out with everything in its place. PPE is provided but I would recommend wearing old clothes or work wear as you will get covered in chippings. I've considered getting a lathe for a while and if I do, I'd definitely go back to Bill for further lessons and guidance.

Just finished a great day wood turning with Bill. What a marvellous day-Bill clearly loves his craft and passes on his knowledge and skills very effectively. On top of that he's a really great engaging conversationalist. If , like me you are starting out in wood turning Bill is the perfect place to begin your journey. Thank you Bill. It was a pleasure meeting you. See you again soon .

I have had several wood turning sessions with Bill and have enjoyed every minute in his company. He has skills a plenty and doesn't flap under a barrage of questions. He is patient, a calming influence when a particular technique is proving difficult to master and will work with you at your pace.
The workshop is well equipped and the kettle is permanently on!!
I do enjoy the fact the tutorship is with small numbers and feel that I am getting good value for my money.
Happy wood turning!!

I spent the day with Bill attending his pepper mill course. I had a brilliant day and came home with something I was really proud. Bill was very patient and guided me through each stage. His workshop was also lovely and warm. Would definitely go again. Thanks Bill.
